Former EMT lieutenant Thomas Joyce, who retired in April 2018, saved $119,189 toward a pension over 38 years working for fire departments, Firemen's Annuity and Benefit Fund of Chicago records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Joyce would collect as much as $4.42 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Chicago City Wire.

The projection assumes Joyce received $93,000 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 2 years of retirement, Joyce will have already received $188,790 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the state pension fund.
